He actually got some paint stains off the car on the mirror side mirror, and some minor scratches also...so he did a wonderful job...for 45 bucks you cant beat it when they come to your house

Professional detailing is an art that, if not done correctly, can ruin a paint finish. I have been detailing for over 20 years and have seen some horrific work done by those that haven't receive proper training. As far as your hood is concerned, a proper wet sand should be able to rectify the imperfections.

Ya. LOL. But hey,... at least you can hide the beer cans in it.

Looks Great Man, I'd give $45 anyday of the week to have someone detail the wifes car. She literally "Lives" in hers and treat it like an appliance rather than a machine to be respected. The GXP is a different story. Radomirs the first person I ever let help clean it.
